Chorizo with Shrimp and Toasted Pasta

Sausage with Hominy and Spinach

Cook up a complete dinner using just one pan. If you've only had hominy―big, starchy corn kernels with the hull and germ removed―in posole, you'll be amazed at how delicious and satisfying it is all on its own. Here we cook it in the seasoning left in the pan by the sausages to maximize flavor.
